  • 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a small bowl, stir peanut butter with lime juice, miso paste, soy sauce, chili sauce and water until blended.

  • 2

    Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add bok choy and green onions. Sauté just until tender, about 2 minutes. Add noodles to boiling water and cook according to package directions, about 1 minute. Reserve ½ cup (125 mL) of noodle water before draining noodles.

  • 3

    Stir noodles, peanut sauce, cilantro, a pinch of salt and half the noodle water into bok choy mixture. If noodles seem too dry, add more noodle water by tablespoon.

  • 4

    Push hot noodles to one side of pan and reduce heat to medium. Crack eggs into pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes for runny eggs. Flip and cook 1 more minute for slightly firmer eggs. 

  • 5

    Divide noodles into 2 bowls. Top each with an egg, then peanuts, and additional hot chili sauce and cilantro, if desired.
